Its with great regret

It is so sad the day has come and I have to stop with my blog.I havent posted for some time and now I have to stop with my swaps.My life has taken a swing to the right then back to the left and Im in the middle of alot of whirl winds.I will hopefully be back on board in the new year with a new life.
My swapping buddies I will miss alot as I did enjoy swapping with lots of ladies from all over.
If I missed any swaps Im sorry for that and hope to get back online asap..

hiya,,,,ohhhhhh stop this time flying past so quickly....I havent even had a chance to get to do my July block swaps done yet and its nearly the end of the month....I have been away and straight back to work so spare time is NIL...
The problem is I have the cruise bug and for the past year I have been taking a cruise on a cruise ship every three to four months. The latest was a 8nighter to the Islands...with my second daughter her daughter and my elder grandson we headed off and had a wonderful time...
My tweo eldest beautiful grandchildren on deck...Nasty looking weather but that was only in Sydney..the further north we travelled the nicer it got...

Ohhhhhh the hugging cousins...
We had the pleasure of having breakfast with the Captain this morning to our surprise...A lovely conversation..
Will catch up on the sewing side of life on Friday...Even thou I only got about 25 stitches done on the cruise.,...hahaha

An amazing package from Tennessee

Hi ho, Ive been meaning to get some posts written but it would seem life is so very busy and I dont even get time to do any sewing.But I had to stop by before work today and post this special big thank you to a lovely lady from Tennessee USA for a very special package that arrived yesterday..
Let me explain a little my father was told 2 weeks that he had prostrate cancer..I am my dads shadow..I love him to pieces..Well Monday this week he had to attend his specialist to get the result on how the cancer had traveled and we had some wonderful news..It hasnt spread and they have caught it in time for him to have radiation 5 times a week for the next 7 weeks..I cant tell you how this has made me feel over the last 2 weeks not knowing how long I have left with my father.So to arrive home yesterday from a very long hard day at work this package gave me a very special "Pick me Up"..Thank you very much indeed Stephanie..
Just ammazing to think a stranger could involve herself into making someone on the other side of the world so happy..Its just like christmas for me so a very big special THANK YOU to Stephanie of
Thsi table runner is just amazing and I love it..It sure must of taken you sometime to make it.Did you make it? It is just beautiful..
Let me tell you what else was in the package.. a lovely book mark, a pin cushon a finger pin holder patterns for paperback book covers, Diamond delights pieces a little quilt pin and a lovely pattern for a Quilt Diva quilt..It truely is amazing...Again Thank you...
My fahters journey is just beginning and I needed badly something good and this has done it...I am looking forward to making others spirits rise when I get to do my "Pay it forward" within the next few weeks. I have two lots so maybe I need to put the call out now for anyone who would like to join in on my "Pay it forward" I am aware it may take me some time to get the word out as I dont have may followers but please anyone who is reading this and would like to receive a "Pay it forward" surprise from me please message me..
Off to work now.Im hoping to get my swap blocks posts done this week..I have receved some wonderful block and must thank the lovely ladies from all over for my blocks..

perfect time for a blog

Hi ho, its 4.19am and Im staying at my daughters home for the night as my son in law is away on business.Its cold and early and I just so happen to have my netbook with me.A perfect time to catchup on a blog post and a pic or two of my May block swaps.
Its windy outside and strange noises just keep happening..Once im awake I cant for the life of me get back to sleep.I have to start work in two hours and thankfully my duaghters house is only about a 5 7 mins drive up the road instead of the 20 mins or so drive for me from my home.
I really am not home again much these days but have managed to get a little done on the sewing front.I must update my WIP sometime soon..I havent got any photos of them with me..I will upload some photos tonight ...
Im off on Friday morning to drive over the rest of the mountains west to a town called Bathurst..Im meeting up with my son his partner asnd my grandson

Hello all in Blogland, Im havent fallen of the side of the world or been eaten by Aliens..I have just been offline and had lots of family issues which has kept me from Blogging..I just spent half hour typing and posting photos and in one push of the wrong button I lost the entire post..I am hopeless when it comes to the computer.
I have to say a big thank you to Cheryll of "Gone Stitchin" for her wonderful "Pay it Forward" gift she sent me..I am unable to download any photos due to this stupid computer..I will need to try again tommorrow..

And another lady I need to say a big big thank you to is Alicia Bisel from Okeene in Oklahoma in the USA for her April Block.She not only sent me her block but she also sent me all the remaining materials from the block.Since then I have managed to make 12 block in Crazy patchwork with the remaining material...Again I dont seem to be able to get this computer to download photos.
Please ladies dont think that I have forgotten you and my thanks have come late but being offline for a couple of weeks has been hard...
Hopefully this has worked and the photos have uploaded.
Also a big thanks to Bobbie Bartlett of QLD for her May block
I am hopeing to be able to keep up with my blogs now..All althought time has passed I will try and post all my block in due cause..
tata for now
